From traditional, natural water supply conservation to a modern nature experience centre
In 1881, the owner of the Sunder Estate, the Squire von Schrader, made his first attempt to establish a fish colony in a natural pool on the estate. The experiment succeeded.
In the course of time, the largest carp farm in northern Germany evolved, which is still indicated today by the carp as a weathercock on the roof of the manor house. Thus this unique area of naturally humid habitat, has been preserved to this day and which is now under a nature protection scheme.
In 1980, the NABU Federal State Association finally acquired the more than 400-year-old Sunder estate and following extensive renovation, ran an in-house NABU training academy during the 1980s and 1990s.
In October 2003, NABU Gut Sunder became part of NABU Lower Saxony. It is now used as a visitor and environmental education centre.
In addition to school trips, seminars, action days and conferences, we have a wide range of nature activities and events to offer each and every single visitor, including for example: animal observation, excursions, children's birthday parties, a straw barn, camping and much more ...
